This blog serves two purposes: Firstly, to help me keep a track of all those little bits of interesting things one comes across that is significant or relevant or just somehow interesting. Secondly, to make pockets of knowledge accessible.
I am interested to see how contemporary artists, designers, researchers and makers engage with digital technologies to either produce or present their work. Hybrid artworks that combined traditional and contemporary, mixed methods are of special interest.
On this blog there is a focus on art related to or inspired by Islamic tradition and culture, as this in combination with multimedia and digital arts is where my own research is currently focussed.
If you are an artist working with technology then I’d love to hear from you. If you are a curator, researcher, historian or practitioner in either digital or Islamic art then I’d also love to hear from you! Let me know your thoughts on these topics and also whether you would like to become involved in future projects contributing to this research.
